The Woman Who Married a Bear Î Sitka Alaska is a subarctic port surrounded by snow dusted mountains In addition to honest work there is a lot of alcohol consumed and other people's money appropriated Bars are loud fights are mean Rowdy youths party in the ancient Russi. I don't usually care for hardboiled crime fiction written in the first person featuring a flawed private detective a la Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe I fell in with this book having read the author's excellent uirky story Cold Storage Alaska I soon realised this was a very different novel It wasn't just a different genre it was written way earlier in the early 1990s The start wasn't encouraging to me either Clever authors these days know not to indulge in huge info dumpsBut this novel has a lot of good points that drew me into the storyIt' has an excellent mystery storyline which kept me guessingJohn Straley uses the sights sounds and smells of Alaska to paint a vivid picture of the placeHe finds the right balance to write about indigenous people with sensibility humour and pathosThe ping and pong of many of his dialogue scenes soar offering a sneak preview of an author bound for better thingsNow for some negative commentsI found the ending a bit lame a bit like cheap and nasty television shows of the 1980sIt didn't answer all my uestions either You could say the first 15 per cent of the book and the last 15 per cent lost this book a star But the middle 70 per cent was well worth the price of admission Read & download ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Þ John Straley

This book took longer to read than I had anticipated considering it's just a smidge over 200 pages and I'm generally a uick reader Normally slow reads indicate that either I was not invested in the book had difficulty understanding all of the book or it's just a gazillion pages long This book does not fall into any of those categories The only excuse I have is that I have been busyThat being said this is the perfect kind of book to have around for times when things are busy It's not a taxing read it's well written it's a nicely paced mystery and it takes place in Alaska a place I've visited once and would love to visit againThe story itself is fine Cecil Younger is an investigator in Alaska who is asked to look into the murder of a Tlingit Indian woman's son I'm a fan of decently written mysteries that are also smart as well as entertaining John Dunning and Michael Connelly are a couple examples but this is the first one I've read where the investigator lives and works in Alaska I liked this change of scenery which automatically also gives the read a different pace as well Life moves much differently in Alaska than it does in LA or New York City and the cultures and histories are vastly different as well Straley who lives in Sitka did a wonderful job bringing Sitka and its people to lifeI hadn't heard of Straley before I found this book on a clearance shelf at my favorite bookstore but today while searching shelves in a Balti used book shop I found two other Cecil Younger novels One of them was a first edition relatively highly priced which made me realize I must really have been missing something by not recognizing his name or his work sooner I didn't manage to get either of the copies of the books at that store today but I do intend to finish the Cecil Younger books eventually
